Dem Rep: 'Many of Our Members Are Furious' With Pelosi's DACA Speech

09 February 2018

"Our basic request is to honor the House of Representatives", Pelosi said at the end of her talk. They gave a standing ovation and high-fived her after she concluded her remarks, according to The Hill news.

But for some members on both ends of her caucus who tuned in, the daylong protest did little to fix the fissure pitting lawmakers against one another on immigration and budget talks.

The proposal will likely require the support of some Democrats if it is to pass the House.

The mood in the House was in stark contrast to the comity in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic leader Chuck Schumer delivered laudatory back-to-back speeches on the accord, which would add almost $300 billion for government programs and suspend the debt ceiling until March 2019.

Hispanic caucus members and other Democrats made clear to Pelosi earlier Wednesday that "we would not support a budget caps deal unless we had some clarity about what would happen to Dreamers", said Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz.

"I think in the end it's the only game in town", said Senator John Thune of South Dakota, the No. 3 Republican.

"We want to be sure that the public record of the Congress of the United States forever more will reflect the stories of their great contribution to America in the hopes that those stories will move the Speaker of the House to give us a vote", Pelosi said. "We're not certain that Clark held the record for the longest speech at the time, but it is the longest example we've been able to find on short notice".

"No, I'm just telling people why I'm voting the way I'm voting", the California Democrat said when asked if she was formally whipping against the spending measure. When she was four years old, she wrote, she was sexually molested by a 16-year-old boy but her parents didn't report it because they were afraid of being deported. She wanted to be a lawyer but could not attend law school until 2012, after the DACA program went into effect. "I wonder what that was?"

Tasneem Al-michael, another DACA recipient who was brought to the US from Brunei when he was 9 months old, said he didn't learn of his immigration status until he was 16.

"We think the American people understand that the governance of our nation is out of whack, it's out of balance", said Crowley. He said once Republicans establish that the government will remain open, the Senate will proceed to an immigration debate.

The House Minority Whip is now urging Democrats to vote against the bipartisan budget deal on Thursday.
